Saturn’s shadow cuts sharply across its rings as the orbits of ring particles carry them suddenly from day to night. With no atmosphere to scatter light, shadows in space are much darker than we’re used to here on Earth.
This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from about 47 degrees below the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on March 5, 2013.
The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 891,000 miles (1.434 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 85 degrees. Image scale is 51 miles (82 kilometers) per pixel.

Venus, Juipter and Moon over Chongqing
“I was born in ChongQing, one of the five biggest cities in China. Chongqing is famous for its beautiful nights all over the world. But in this city the light pollution is a major problem. With lots of neon lamps, I’ve never seen a starry night since I was a child. March 24, 2012 was a special day, Because Venus, Jupiter and the young crescent Moon were aligned. I went to the highest point of Chongqing to see this celestial beauty, but as you can see in the picture, It’s hard to see even Jupiter (brighter than any star in the night sky, at Magnitude ~ -2).” — Jeff Dai
